Hello again to all that responded to my email. It was so good to have
mail. I forget what it is like to be on this site. Yes, Sally, I
should be grateful for any improvement and boy do I have it. I remember
when my adhesions were all the way up my bowels and stuck to my
abdominal wall. I felt like I was 9 months pregnant and every thing I
did caused so much pain the following day. I am now free to do most
anything and actually danced on New Years Eve. I walk about 2 miles
every other day and clean a 3,000 square foot house in one day. I just
love life so much and I only have 2 things that depress me now. One is
fatique. I sleep so much and I am not sure if it is from the many
surgeries or the pain meds. I can sleep 12 hours a night with no
problem and if I don't get 10 I am a zombie. The second thing is the
brain fog from the Methadone. I can't remember much and I wonder if I
will ever be able to get a job where I have to think. I am a nurse and
wouldn't think to work as one while on these drugs (even at these small
doses). I would be so afraid to make a mistake. So I am just
caretaking the elderly and taking life one day at a time. The Methadone
totally covers the pain and so I am mostly pain free but without it I
would be in an emergency room within 8 hours.
Someone asked me about Germany and I must say that I believe that Dr.
Korell saved my life. He is the finest surgeon money can buy and he is
so wonderful and patient. I feel like Germany is a second home. I
loved every minute of it and would love to go back for an extended stay
someday. I do believe that my adhesions are gone now and you wouldn't
believe how many that I had! So the Intergel worked even though I had
some major side effects from it. It sort of shut down my bowels and
froze them solid. But that is all repaired now with mega herbs.
I'll keep in touch more often as I love this site.
